Betta Sorority DOA

Sad day, 2 out of 5 girls died in transit. It was sent Priority on Monday and USPO delivered yesterday afternoon. Box was well packed with heat pack....

The other 3 are doing better with clean water but still has to eat. One of them is swimming, the other cautiously swimming last night.

But one of them is staying at the bottom with the tail half of the body curled at 60 degrees. Tummy looks a tad swollen. Is that normal? Should I treat with ES and Paraguard dip?

On no! How upsetting! I am so sorry. I don't know what do do about your girl, but I would give her at least 24-48 hours to destress from shipping before medicating. Maybe darken her tank so she can relax, with lots of cover plants?

So sorry to hear about the loss in transit. Paraguard is very good for all incoming fish and I would recommend its use in this situation for sure.

I'm so sorry! I can't add anything helpful that hasn't already been mentioned, but I did want to express my condolences. :(
